How about we keep this crap out of sporting events. We tune in for the game not this BS. Go on TV, radio, internet, rallys or a thousand other ways to get your message across.

Did anyone watch the Olympics? The pride these athletes from all walks of life showed for their country was amazing.

I agree, and if wasn't a has-been and delegated to holding a clipboard he wouldn't be making this stand. He is only doing it now because he has nothing to lose.

He has more to gain now actually. He can kvetch about being benched for political reasons rather than being washed up.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

When then cut him he will say it is because of this. Makes you wonder if he gives a damn about any cause except his own.

ETA: Talk about great minds.  :)

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

By the fact that it made the news and you and I are talking about it is proof that he successfully brought the problem to the forefront.
I agree he accomplished more than he ever dreamed he would of.

How does a football wearing a pink ribbon stop breast cancer?
I heard the NFL denied the Cowboys from wearing stickers for the cops that were killed in Dallas, pretty crazy.

He lost his starting job and probably was going to get released, now he can blame his release on something other than his on field performance.

I thought this was a great response, which addresses much of what has been discussed in this thread.

So in the same vein those BLM burning the flags are OK with what they are doing because its bringing the issue to the news? this guy is a failure and wanted to change the topic.

Yes, what's wrong if they aren't harming anyone other than feelings.

We are talking about if this guy disrespected all those that have served. His issue is a nonissue. Nobody cares and most don't even know why he did it. All they know is he did it and they are upset over it.

What does this have to do with the military? They most certainly now know why he did it. And btw, it's not a non issue.

Would love to see a guy bring a confederate flag into an event so he could bring his issue (whatever it maybe) to the forefront.

What planet are you living on. You don't understand the connection between the flag and all those that serve?

Forget about if me or you do; you think this guy does?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I understand the connection. But I don't agree that the military is in any way the main theme or reason for respecting the flag/anthem.

Of course a flag is all about military.
That's why countries like Japan with no real military got rid of their flags.
